Before getting to the heart of this guide and explaining, in practice, how to unlock the SPID, let me give you some more information about the potential reasons for the block. The first, as well as the most widespread, concerns entering an incorrect password several consecutive times in a short period of time: in such cases, the account is temporarily blocked for security reasons and is automatically restored after a certain time of inactivity.

However, it may happen that some Identity Providers apply stricter security policies, preventing the autonomous recovery of SPID credentials (as in the case of Lepid): when this happens, it is necessary to contact the assistance team of the certifying body, which will verify the identity of the applicant and reactivate, in a short time, the SPID access.

If, on the other hand, it is no longer possible for you to use the SPID identity because you have one forgot the credentials oi secondary access codes, the solution is often even simpler: all that needs to be done is to follow the automatic recovery/recovery procedure provided by the certifying body, to obtain the information requested via SMS on the number provided when activating the digital identity, or via e-mail. For everything to go well, you need to have some additional information, such as your own fiscal Code and the identification code of the SPID identity which is delivered via email when activating the digital identity.

After explaining to you what are the reasons that could lead to the temporary blocking of SPID, the time has come to give you some more information about the procedures necessary to regain access to your digital identity.

For example, if your SPID is blocked why you can’t remember your username anymore or the password that you used to log in, I tell you right away that almost all Identity Providers allow you to retrieve your credentials in complete autonomy: in practice, all you have to do is go to the website of the identity certifying body SPID, select the item related to loss of username and/or password and follow the simple wizard, to get them again. During this stage, you may need to specify the SPID identification code and/or your tax code and, subsequently, the insertion of the one-time code received via SMS on the certified mobile number. For further information on this, please consult my tutorial on how to retrieve the SPID in which I have given you all the necessary information.

If, on the other hand, you are no longer able to log into SPID because your account has been temporarily suspended (if, for example, you have entered an incorrect password several times in a short period of time), you may simply have to wait a few minutes before trying to log on to the system again. In most cases, this procedure proves to be decisive.

In other situations, however, it may be necessary to follow an unblocking procedure similar to that envisaged for resetting the password, authorizing the modification of the latter after entering the disposable code received via SMS; in still other cases, it may be necessary to contact the Identity Provider technical staff directly to request the reactivation of the account.

Clearly, the procedure to be followed varies according to the certifying body that provides the SPID identity and the verification services supported; below I illustrate the procedure to follow to recover the SPID for some of the main providers.

So, all you have to do is wait half an hour and repeat the login procedure again using the posted app for smartphones and tablets Android, iOS, and iPad the PosteID official site or the login system with specific SPID for the service you need (e.g. the INPS portal).

In the first case, you will be asked to enter the SPID identification code (which you should have received via email when activating the digital identity), to have your username delivered to you via email or SMS; in the second case, instead, you will have to specify the username that you used to use to access the digital identity and then enter the disposable code which is delivered to you via SMS on the cellphone number associated with SPID, in order to continue with the password reset.
